Making Yourself Part of Your Investment Team In Sacramento

Remember, getting into real estate is easy, getting out is harder!  That feeling is being felt now by many   investors who bought at the height of the market in 2005 in Sacramento because they ignored some or all basic investment fundamentals. Once you closed escrow, it™s yours and that™s when you   start to find out about all the things you should have known before or asked of more questions of.     That™s because now your not in a rush and you can think clearly now.  I’ve always said, œthe only time you get in trouble in real estate is when your in a hurry or feel sorry for someone.
Investing in real estate means not seeing things as they are but as they can be. If you can   pick the right property in a good location at a good price, then you have succeeded in investing in real estate.

Looking around all of Sacramento and the outlying areas, you see many properties for sale, the key is to pick the best one for your money. The key is to pick the one with no œunexpected cost in repairs that overrun your drafted budget. The key is to turn this place around and lease it at the targeted rent as quickly as possible. Do your homework, and dont be in a rush.

If you jumped in Summer 2005 because a friend or realtor told you to, well!!!, I know the outcome!!!  If you had a good experienced trustworthy realtor you would have not bought in 2005 period!!!, or 2006.Currently, the Sacramento real estate market is a good value for investing in income producing properties.  2010 is the year to set your base and start acquiring properties.       In this market if you follow certain basic conservative real estate investing principals which people forgot about in the last real estate boom such as:

1.               20-25 % down on a low risk tolerance loan product.
2.               Target the best income producing areas.
3.               Target the best income producing properties.
4.               Research and understand all your anticipated expense ahead of time.
5.               Estimate carefully your vacancy rate.
6.               Remodel/repair property prior to renting and from estimate plan a monthly cost going forward.

Who Will Be Rewarded By Investing In Sacramento Real Estate in 2010

This means, now is the time to be securing a real estate portfolio and holding it for a 5-7 year investment.  Prices at these levels make sense because they cash flow.     Rents are stable and this allows them to be leased out quckly which in turn adds to the positive return annually.

We are seasoned Real Estate Professionals who can help you find the right property and most of all help you manage it. As I always said, buying the right property is one thing, managing it correctly can make it a succesfull investment or a loss.

Real Estate Investing In Sacramento Now March 2010

Currently, the Sacramento real estate market is a good value for investing in income producing properties.   2010 is the year to set your base and start acquiring properties.       In this market if you follow certain basic conservative real estate investing principals which people forgot about in the last real estate boom such as:

1.               20-25 % down on a low risk tolerance loan product.
2.               Target the best income producing areas.
3.               Target the best income producing properties.
4.               Research and understand all your anticipated expense ahead of time.|
5.               Estimate carefully your vacancy rate.
6.               Remodel/repair property prior to renting and from estimate plan a monthly cost going forward.

8.               Keep up with market rates and the competition
9.               Most importantly, understand the worse case scenario and plan an exit strategy.

What you have to ask yourself is this?   If I invest now and at the end of the day, I know my income and expenses and its cash flow positive and makes sense, will I be comfortable each month and for the next 5 years with this investment?     As an investor we can never time the market perfectly to get in at the low end, unless u have a magic ball like or believe in what all the real estate gurus predict.     But one thin you can do is decide when it™s comfortable enough for yourself to invest.       If the numbers make sense, then tune out the negative media noise and invest.     Fear is what drives the market but if you crunch the numbers and your positive, cash flow and it makes sense than what are you waiting for, start acquiring.     As long as you follow the proper investing fundamentals above and position yourself with the right real estate and property management company you will be well taken care of. As I said before, picking the right property is one thing, managing is another and where things can go wrong and break you financially!

Why Buy In Sacramento?

Now is a great time to buy in Sacramento, these prices are an investors bargain shopping real estate mall.     I have one rule that has helped me decide if an investment is really and investment over the years.     While there are may formulas to decide whether to buy or not, I wlays use the 1% rule to help me decide quickly if a property is worth spening time researching more in detail.     This means for every $100,000.00 you spend to buy a property, you need to receive at last 1% in rents to break even or have positve cash flow.
If you do the math and add up all the mothly expenses and compare that to the rent, you will quickly see how this works. For instance, if you buy a $100,000.00 house or duplex, you need to receive at least $1000.00 a month in rents to make profit of break even.  If you buy a $300,000.00 house or duplex, you need to receive $300,000.00 in rents.  As you can see, the second scenario is really not going to happen. Tell me where in Sacramento is someone paying 3k for rent, even if it was a duplex, where in Sacramento is someone paying $1,500.00 in rent per unit?

This is how in 2005 people got in trouble, they just bought anything and the rents could not pay off the mothly expense.     These are the simple things we make you think of when you are looking for an investment property.     Prices in Sacramento are allowing us to achieve this 1% Rule again.     This is why its the time to buy in Sacramento!
